? >> no sir >> eric is saying she was not moved at all by this debate. this is steve joins us on our democrats line. >> i watched the debate for a second time tonight, and the first time i thought romney had him back on his heels of a lot. the second time through, i really did not see much difference or hear anything new from either one of them. romney seems to have been able to sugarcoat his theory of cutting spending, getting rid of what he would call our entitlements. obama was able to put a little different face on things. the second time through, i really don't think there was much of a gain by either one. >> your thoughts on a republican president? >> the first time through, i thought president obama was a little back on his heels the first time through. the second time through, i felt like he really stated his. and he was accurate. romney was able to turn around and kind of twist things, the way they have been doing. i thought rod did ok. i guess i was expecting him to be a little more aggressive -- i thought barack did ok. >> not only can you post your opinion on facebook, there was a
's extremely difficult if not impossible for anyone to win statewide -- >> guest: steve, i disagree with that analysis. abraham lincoln was a third party in 1860. in 1856, you had the democratic party and the wig -- and abraham lincoln wasn't on the ballot in a number of states, particularly in the south, yet he won the election. he didn't win a majority of the popular vote, he won the majority of the electoral vote and in 1832, i would submit that there were two parties there and it was henry clay and andrew jackson and jackson won the overwhelming popular vote. back in 1824, there was certainly several different parties running and then, of course, john quincy adams won that race and that was -- you had at least three, maybe four, parties then. host: but even -- >> guest guest the electoral votes. host: but even if you take it to more recent campaigns, 1968, the caller referring to george wallace did get 46 electoral votes but didn't get close to winning the presidency, ross perot, '92 and '96, getting nearly 20 percent of the vote in '92 but not one electoral vote. guest: he got

by the institute for peace. my job is to introduce steve heideman. he has directed the center for democracy and civil studies -- civil society at georgetown. he -- he is a terrific asset for the institute. this project is driven by syrians, with technical assistance and other kinds of assistance from the institute and a sister institute in germany. it is important these efforts are driven by local populations, things that are handed down from the united states did not work all that well. we are pleased that you are here. i hope you have lots of questions, and if i can turn this over to you -- >> thank you para much, and let me add my welcome to you. we are delighted to see you here this morning. it will be an interesting conversation about syria after assad the challenges of managing a transition period as jim mentioned, the event this morning is in many ways a culmination of a project that has been in the destination for about nine months. if that there's any similarity to other properties of gestation, it is a coincidence. this event this morning is an opportunity for us to discuss a docu
how much he weighs and steve cropp's questions on "60 minutes pierre host: both the president and governor romney were featured on "60 minutes." were fair, the romney's online of withkelly. is there a parallel their debt guest: both candidates both did a "60 minutes." that asked them similar questions on the program. on the day that mitt romney was under attack by everybody, steve croft asking obama if mitt romney screw up -- that is the kind of thing that cbs is not holding him accountable. both candidates will do the syrupy things but mitt romney is doing press conferences and obama has not been doing press conferences. you can look at the research on this. president obama has done more one-on-one said downs then press conferences. he likes to control the message and he would rather sit down with barbara walters and have her ask them what superpower he would like to have. host: fredericksburg, va., an airline for democrats -- -- on our line for democrats -- caller: i get tired of them talking about liberal, biased media. if there was, do you think they will allow george bush
to these issues? potentially. you know, steve, i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of americans. i think they consider themselves fiscally responsible and socially respecting. reachingacc -- socially accepting. i am in that broad brush category myself. how does that equate to all the issues that we face today? i do not think either party -- i don't think democrats are good on civil liberties. i don't think republicans are good at dollars and cents. when it comes to civil liberties and being republican, it is not happening at all. host: you might remember john anderson won 6.6% of the national vote. ralph nader has won several times. you have been called the original tea party candidate. i want to play a little bit of tape with ross perot. we will show this interview tonight at 9:00 p.m. he reflects on the tea party movement. let's take a listen. [video clip] >> i'm wondering what your thoughts were with the tea party revolution. >> it was interesting to see that happen. i think it had managed in impact, don't you? it is n
: i am i democrat. host: we will try to get a republican. steve from tennessee. what do you think, does the drop in the unemployment rate have any effect on the presidential race? caller: first of all, i want to say that it is a false report. it is absolutely impossible for it to be 7.8%. this report has been skewed, just like the polls in obama's favor. i also want to comment on the health care. if the truth about the health care were known as far as the hidden taxes, this law absolutely destroys the american economy once it takes full effect. i also want to make one more comment -- of the people would take a look and investigate the background of peru, and investigate the background of mitt romney, obama has never run anything in his entire life -- if people look at investigate the background of barack obama and investigate the background of mitt romney, obama has never run anything in his entire life. if he is reelected, life in america will no longer be the same. he has succeeded in everything he has tried to do -- believe me, he does not want this country to succeed. host: th

. >> and that could look like >> the could look like a treaty? >> it could look like any kind of framework. >> steve put yourself in the camp of people in very senior physicians who look at cyber weapons as strategic weapons? you start drawing these analogies to the cold war, the nuclear arms race. the see if the playbacks -- see it that way? >> there is a lot of hot talk. >> it is washington, d.c. >> of questions i want to ask the go back to the executive order. where does the president authority begin and end, regarding a cyber executive order? can he issue the lieberman bill, as an executive order? and you have answered the second part of the harder. the president of authority -- is that something you are looking at? do you have the answers to that? >> i would start with article 2 of the constitution of the united states, the powers that derive from that. there are a number of supreme court cases. you begin with the responsibility of the president to keep the nation secure. >> if people are doing this by fiat, you are going to be accused of circumventing the legislative process, issuing orders. y
considered" in 2003. i said on monday that npr's steve inskeep is the first male voice i hear in the morning, and he is, at melissa is a very competent and informed female voice, which i hear in the late afternoon on the way home. she was in china preparing a broadcast for npr when a massive earthquake struck in 2008, and major organizations around the world rely on her extensive reporting on the destruction and relief efforts. i have many henry kissinger stories. i won't spend the full 15 minutes he demanded -- [laughter] but i will tell you a few of them. let's try this. this past valentine's day, he was my date. well, what really happened is that henry and i contacted our dear friends and ritu -- our dear friends andrea mitchell and alan greenspan about spending the evening with them, and we ended up in a hotel room with flowers. henry and i also sat with each other at defense policy board meetings, and we just spent a day and a half doing that discussing the very complicated issue of iran. at one of those meetings, henry told me -- this is very personal -- that i was his jewish mother.
